In the province of Quebec, the Eye Disease Foundation is the only non-profit
organization taking care of visual health. We raise money to support research
on eye diseases and to help children in underprivileged areas having a better sight.
Eye diseases affect over 3,5 millions of Canadians. Diabetic retinopathy (eye disease) is the leading cause of blindness in people between 35 and 60 years of age. In the province of Quebec, close to 90,000 cataract surgeries are performed yearly and 70,000 canadian workers are hurt to an eye. It is therefore crucial to continue the funding of reasearch !
More than 700 cornea grafts are performed each year in the province. The Eye disease foundation is proud to support the organ and tissue donation program and invites you to sign your health insurance card to signify your consent for organ donation.
Make a donation for research on eye diseases and for a healthy sight in children.
Thanks to the Eye disease foundation, more than 3 millions $ have been distributed to fund research projects. More than 22,000 children have participated in our visual screening clinics and more than 5,000 free pair of glasses have been given to children issued from underprivileged areas.
